MGH cares for another Boston sports
Price, who also is the chief of Neurology at McLean Hospital, is no stranger to the game of tennis. He played competitively for Harvard University and as a Junior Davis Cup team member and has a special understanding of the physical and mental rigors of the sport. As head team physician, Price's expertise is head and neck injuries including concussive and brain trauma as well as nerve-related issues. For bone and joint-related medical concerns, he is supported by Thomas Gill, MD, of MGH Orthopædics and team physician for the Boston Red Sox, and Kai Mithofer, MD, a Boston orthopedist who trained at the MGH.
The Lobsters are one of 12 World Team Tennis teams, each comprising two
male and two female players. The players, who compete in co-ed matches,
are selected by draft, just as in any other professional sport, and include
some of the best-known names in the tennis world.
The Lobsters are the fifth of Boston's professional sports teams to bring
their care to the MGH, following the New England Patriots, the Boston
Bruins, the New England Revolution and the Boston Red Sox.
